IKEA Seeks Partnership with Children’s NFP

International furniture giant IKEA is looking to secure a partnership with a national children’s charity, offering up to $300,000 in funding.

IKEA Australia says it is looking to initiate a three-year partnership with a Not for Profit organisation working in Australia, specifically with offices or activities located close to their Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne stores.

“The partnership will include cash donations, 1000 days of volunteer help from IKEA employees and the opportunity to hold fundraising events at local IKEA stores,” IKEA Australia’s Sustainability Manager Richard Wilson said.

“The partnership will operate under IKEA’s sustainability program, People and Planet as well as their membership loyalty card program, the IKEA Family, which currently donates 10 cents from every purchase to charity.

“The company already donates half of this fund to UNICEF Australia. The other half will now go towards the new partnership,” he said.

“The Food With Love program from IKEA restaurants, starting in September, will also donate $1 up to $30,000 from every organic children’s meal it sells.

“We are looking for an organisation that will allow IKEA and its employees to work together with the organisation.”

He said IKEA’s social community focus has always been with children.

“At IKEA we are guided by our vision of creating a better everyday life for the many people,” he said.

“We also recognise that we have a responsibility beyond the home through the impact of our business and the role we have in society. We need to make a small, but significant, contribution.”
